Hess Exhibits at Salon des Maires in Paris
Hess and Thorn - A Success!
Together with its French sales partner Thorn, the Hess Group presented its products and services to representatives from towns and cities at a booth at the annual Salon des Maires trade fair.
In addition to exhibiting its energy-efficient LED outdoor lighting products, Hess also demonstrated how its multifunctional lighting systems, such as the modular CITY ELEMENTS multipurpose column, satisfy a host of urban lighting and utility needs. Available in three diameters and heights up to nine metres, CITY ELEMENTS is a single answer to most of the common as well as many of the unusual challenges that confront architects and lighting designers in designing the public realm. Visitors to the booth were also presented with several other models, including NEW YORK, an outdoor luminaire with integrated electronic programmable dimmer, the utility bollard TARO, and POSITANO, a seat illuminated by colour-changing RGB LEDs. The products displayed provided fairgoers with a cross section of the diverse uses and potential LED-based lighting solutions offered by Hess.
Functional site furnishings, including the CERES bicycle rack and MARINO, a tree grate, complemented the products that were on display. A self-explanatory information board illustrated the fundamental advantages of energy-efficient lighting for booth visitors.
Where Consumers and Representatives from Municipal Governments Meet
Around 850 international exhibitors from 11 different related fields operated booths at the trade show held on the Porte de Versailles grounds. They presented their solutions for urban development planning, environmental technology and many related products that interest municipal planners. The fair provided both consumers as well as representatives from municipal governments with the opportunity to inform themselves during the three-day event about the sustainable design alternatives that are available for the private and public sectors. One of the fair's key topics this year was the responsible management of energy, particularly, as concerns public lighting.
